- Boil and cool the milk.
- While the milk is cooling, peel off the pith of all chickoos, along with a real thick layer underneath.
- Take the pulp out by removing all seeds from the chickoo.
- Chop the chickoo pulp in small pieces as big pieces might not blend very well.
- Put both milk and chickoo pieces in the blender, if you choose to add honey then put that too and blend on high speed for 30 seconds to get a smooth paste-like consistency.
- Serve the milkshake immediately.
We are sure you would find this a very easy Chickoo milkshake recipe to make. Babies and toddlers would love it as chickoo has a rich sweet taste which kids would surely relish.
- Do not serve the milk cold from the fridge, as cold does not go well with most kids.
- Wash chickoos thoroughly and make sure no dust is left on it and wipe it nicely.
- Make sure you have removed all the seeds from the chickoos, as the seed would impart a bitter taste to the milkshake.
- When taking out skin, take a whole lot of upper layer out since that part is difficult to blend into a smooth texture and also hinders digestion in kids.
- If you want to keep it dairy-free for your child for lactose or casein intolerance then you can replace milk with coconut milk, almond milk or hemp milk. These different kinds of milk will bring about their unique goodness to the recipe.
- If the baby is still nursing then you could use breast milk to make it even healthier for your child.
- Honey is not needed as chickoo has a sweet taste, so in case you feel it is too sweet, you can omit it. Honey should be used for kids above 18 months.
- You can replace honey with jaggery to give a twist to the taste. Jaggery should be used for kids above 12 months.
- It is important to clean and sterilize all the utensils used for blending as well as feeding the kid.
